    Big thanks for the tips guys cheers

    Steve kindly lent me his coil/lead/cap & plug, fitted it to mine & all seemed ok Very Happy
    Took it for a spin & stopped in a little play area bloody thing was still doing again head but
    Pissed right off i started pulling wheelies like a spoilt teenager then realize it stopped doing it even at low revs scratch
    Then the penny dropped it was only happening when i turned the handle bars sharp left Rolling Eyes

    Turns out the rubber sleeve had slid back off the kill switch wire & was touching the left fork lol!
    Can't beleive it took me one one full day & two evenings to realize it Embarassed
    But glad its an Easy Cheap fix lol!
